HMI is honored to participate at the 201st Annual Meeting of the New York Academy of Sciences

HMI as a Member The New York Academy of Sciences is honored to participate at the Academy’s 201st Annual Meeting.

During the event  special guests for a by-invitation-only screening of Jim Allison: Breakthrough (2019), the inspirational story of one scientist’s quest to find a cure for cancer. Today, Academy Member James P. Allison is well-known for receiving the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine jointly with Japanese immunologist Tasuku Honjo for their discovery of cancer therapies that stimulate the immune system to attack tumor cells. This gripping documentary follows Dr. Allison’s life and work over several decades, and provides insight into what it means to struggle against skepticism and resistance in order to achieve the extraordinary. A Q&A session with Bill Haney, the film’s director, was  followed the screening.
